Listen to Understand, Not to Be Understood

The biggest mistake that I made in my life coming from inexperience was that I was listening to get my point across instead of listening to understand. We all have been guilty of doing that in our lives.

What if I’m supposed to create the doors so others can open them for me?

Access Granted..

Create Your Own Door

Mind-Race…..
